Continue past the entry into the updated kitchen with crisp white cabinets, durable tile counters and floors, and appliances that stay with the home. 

If you are taking a night off as chef there is a plethora of dining options, many within walking distance!

Continue down Division Ave and you'll find local favorites such as Harvester and Copper Door

The comfortable and open floor plan is great for entertaining. You can see how the home flows in this photo of the living and dining rooms and there is even a convenient pass through from the kitchen into the dining room! Keep on eye on activities while preparing meals. 

The handsome hardwood floors were refinished in 2003. Open the French doors and let the outdoors in. Perfect for dining alfresco on the covered back deck. 

The lovely living room has many historic details such as the coved doorways, original moldings, and all original and working windows. 

Main floor 3/4 bathroom is ideal for guests, and the washer and dryer are neatly tucked behind the accordion door with additional storage above. 

Upstairs there are three bedrooms, and a handsome marble 3/4 bathroom. The chandelier is original to the home. 

First of the three bedrooms. Original windows are in good working condition and the ceiling fan will help keep you cool on warm summer nights! 

Second bedroom with vaulted ceilings and handsome original moldings. 

Cozy third bedroom which would make a wonderful home office, nursery, library, or artistic retreat. 

The elegant marble bathroom services the three bedrooms upstairs.

Open the French doors in the dining room and continue out into the fully landscaped lush garden retreat. Carefully chosen native plants flourish in the private backyard. Meander through the garden and you will find ferns, vine maple, red osier dogwood, roses, nine barks, and dwarf specimen trees. Semi dwarf hollywood flowering plum trees flank the front walkway welcoming you to the home. All of the hard work has been done, now you can simply enjoy the lovely landscaping. 

Looking back at the covered deck which is the ideal spot for the BBQ! Lovely terraced landscaping with plenty of green space for a four legged companion! If you need some more room to roam you're blocks away from Wright Park, a 27 acre arboretum with a sprayground, and dedicated lawn bowling and bocce ball green. 

Having a car is totally optional in this extremely walkable neighborhood. Even more so with the planned addition of a high capacity / streetcar  network that would include stops in Stadium DistrictDowntown Tacoma is also just minutes away and has something to offer for everyone. Enjoy attractions such as the Tacoma Art Museum, and the Theater District. On Thursdays from 10 am – 3 pm you can pick up some fresh locally grown produce at the Broadway Farmer's Market which runs from May 7th through October 29th and is celebrating its 25th year making it Tacoma's first and longest standing market!
